Buccaneers to win 23-10. We're headed to 7-9. They've the better QB and all around team.

I see 'Hands like Feet' Hankerson has gone on IR but will it make any difference to the offense? However I'm glad to have Devin Hester back and hopefully he can provide a spark to either the offense or the return game because we certainly need it.

In spite of the hot mess that is the season at this point the improving play of the secondary is a positive. We're 5th in terms of fewest passing TDs allowed and 15th in fewest passing yards per game although we could stand to take a few more interception opportunities. If we had LBs that could cover RBs and TEs then we could easily be top 10 even more so if we could generate some pass rush!

This may be a slightly controversial point but I'd still take Desmond Trufant over Josh Norman. Trufant maybe doesn't get as much recognition as he's more like Nnamdi Asomugha was in Oakland where teams don't throw his way whereas Norman plays a bit more loosely and baits QBs into throwing at his WR and then making plays hence he gets more opportunities and thus more recognition.

The offense is struggling currently but looking at the stats I'm pleasantly surprised at some of the defensive rankings. 11th in yards per game and 13th in points allowed which is a significant improvement on the 32nd in yards per game and 27th in points allowed. With another year in the system and being able to upgrade through free agency and the draft it's not all doom and gloom.

Not a pretty 1st half but we lead non the less. Hopefully the offense can get going in the 2nd half because I can't see Field Goals being enough to win.

Slightly off topic but I'm liking David Diehl on the commentary - wouldn't mind seeing a bit more of him!

The Falcons defense will never fail to amaze me at how bad they are.
